Can U Marry A Disabled Guy/lady by lovelynk(f): 6:14am On Nov 21, 2009
sometime ago, a friend of my Mum invited us to her son's wedding.It happened  that the son was blind and the wife:she was a very beautiful lady with good education and a good job.

Also,there was this lady that was invited to give a special song ministration in our church way back.she was in a wheel chair and she sang so beautifully.Suprisingly,the gentleman that pushed the wheel chair was her husband and the two teenagers that played the instruments were their kids.

Recently,my friend towed the same path.he married a lady with a physical disability.they dated for 4 years b4 the marriage.Somhow,his parents loved the girl and he actually told me that wn he told his parents he has seen his wife his dad said if it is not that girl that comes here count me out.It happend to be the girl so there were no objections.I spoke wt him and he said he loved her and will make up for wateva defects

This got me thinking
How many of us can do that and how do u stand up to oppostion from friends,families etc ?

You can't choose your fate or destiny, and not everyone is born disabled at birth, and no one knows what is around the corner, one could step out of the house and get knocked over by a car and lose a body part, so is this kinda tantamount to saying disabled people should go and commit suicide undecided Just asking lipsrsealed

Err Judge Cool, is applying sentiments to one's comment a violation of Nairaland's forum's rules undecided Err . . . I didn't think so cool

Madam Judge Cool, is it your own response that is adequate "you love them" - how condescending - as if that is a favour they should kiss your feet for undecided

And now that you've asked for it, FYI, it was the way you said "them" that prompted my response to this thread, to bring you back to planet Earth with a bump, that IT COULD HAPPEN TO ANYONE, ANYTIME, INCLUDING YOU cool  Very simple too wink

I understand what you are trying to say, but true love does not discriminate, it shouldn't undecided

I repeat I love them. I didn't know that loving your neighbour is condescending and considered a favour! But now that you have said it, maybe you can tell us what is so condescending about loving them.

Busy_body:

But then where is the true love when you don't even have any feeling whatsoever for someone in the first place? This is all about feelings, not discrimination.

Other than being born with a disability, becoming disabled through an accident etc can happen to anyone. As for me, I really don't know, it really depends on many factors such as the disability, my lifestyle bla bla bla, but you may well indeed be surprised that love happens . undecided

genuine loves knows no disability or ability. when it comes to genuine love there are no boundaries. you dont set limit on love. its easier and safer to say no or yes now, but life is full of uncertainties and tomorrow is pregnant who knows what it will give birth to?

LMFAO genuine love cheesy cheesy cheesy cheesy
The only love that truly exist is between a child/parent
Re: Can U Marry A Disabled Guy/lady by Sissy3(f): 8:09am On Nov 23, 2009

Re: Can U Marry A Disabled Guy/lady by Sissy3(f): 8:36am On Nov 23, 2009
@tRoOE

nah, i dont mean lust or infatuation. i mean genuine love. dont really fancy those true love phrases, cox they have truly lost their meanings these days.
yea, it might be hard and even more harder for many ppl these days to believe that there is such in these day and time, due to all the abuse and bad raps "love" gets nowadays but believe you me, it does exist. :

Re: Can U Marry A Disabled Guy/lady by Nobody: 10:38am On Nov 23, 2009
It's sad though, we tend to make lifelong decisions based on physical appearances. That a man/woman is disabled shouldn't count. What matter us who he/she is and if they are worth taking the long road of life with!

Honestly, I dont know if I can . . but I wish that if ever I'm faced with such a situation, I'll be wise enough to overlook the irrelevant disability! undecided

Now here's a sisthren after my own heart cheesy I don't know about the reason for your stance but as for me, I have experienced true love before too, but with the shortage of men out there currently at the ratio of one man to 10 women, I can no longer bring my humble self to be greedy wishing and hoping to fall in love again, so I feel I should give others a chance to experience this kinda love too tongue cheesy


I am doing it for God too, He loves a cheerful giver like me so I dash the other girls the chance tongue

Sincerely I dont think I can. I never place myself in situations to even get close to them, becos love can grow in the most unexpected places. Really need to upgrade my mentality on this.
